FSM joins the Festivus pole at the Wisconsin capital. God I love religious diversity!

Courtesy of TPM:  

First, there was a Festivus pole. 

Then on Monday the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Atheists, Humanists and Agnostics group placed a "Flying Spaghetti Monster" among the holiday displays inside Wisconsin's Capitol. 

Any group that submits an application to Capitol police can erect a display in accordance with the First Amendment ban on state establishment of religion, according to the Associated Press. 

The student group's "pastafarian" deity was represented in the rotunda by a poster that proclaims the monster "boiled for your sins!" 

"This is the problem of allowing religious symbols to be displayed in government buildings," the student group wrote on its website. "When the State decided to turn the Capitol into an open forum, they opened the floodgates which the Flying Spaghetti Monster just sailed through. We would much prefer to keep government buildings free from all religious (and irreligious) messages, but if it must be "anything goes," we hope everyone takes advantage of this opportunity to advertise their own viewpoints - no matter how silly."

I ma beginning to think that the Wisconsin State Capital is the place to go this holiday season.

I mean after all where else can you get a taste for the depth of the religious diversity present in these United States?

Well besides Oklahoma that is.

    Boiled for our sins?

    That's seriously mocking a white man who was a verifiable fact. And is the rison for the sison also too there, right Lou Sarah?

    1. At least the flying spaghetti monster is verifiably white.

      Unless you're using whole wheat pasta, of course.

    1. There's a book out with his name on it?

  6. Holy Marinara!

    This is such fun. Hmnmm, is it legal to have this much fun skewering the Kool-Aid-swilling sheeple?

    These Pastafarians piss me off with their ridiculous beliefs. They claim that the Spaghetti monster is so powerful that he can create a strainer to hold anything when it's obvious the Spaghetti monster is too powerful to be held by any strainer. Assholes. It's time reformation... Pastarian 2.0.

  8. I have nothing witty to add. I'm too busy laughing. Good job, everyone.

    Make mine "Al Dente" and I'm a happy camper.

    This may sound silly, but I honestly wouldn't mind something like this happening in every state in the union. It's educational, inclusional, teaches acceptance and is humorous, but most of all, it's a thorn in the side of all the folks who feel they own the rights to the holidays.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
